EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL

THE BEST OF EUROPEAN CINEMA COMING TO SOUTH AFRICA!

The European Film Festival is back for the 4th time at Cinema Nouveau theatres in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town from 5 to 14 May.

The lineup of films represents 12 countries, including Ireland and Croatia for the first time. Each film reflects the skills and take on the world of filmmakers who are not limited by national borders.

American Honey, an award-winning British-made road movie set in America's mid-west, is as much a magical mystery tour into Americana as it is a coming-of-age drama. King of the Belgians is a comedic piece coming out of Belgium, which sees the Belgian king and his entourage crossing the Balkans in a madcap adventure, after learning of a coup back home. Acknowledged by the Rotterdam International Film Festival, this movie is a road trip with a difference, at once thoughtful, hilarious and wild. Strike a Pose is a Dutch documentary exploration of "Madonna's men", the male dancers who served to consolidate the pop icon's message and status as an outspoken advocate for LGBT-rights. This winner of a jury award at the Key West Film Festival is an unrelenting documentary which exposes new aspects of a well-known story. Germany's Toni Erdmann is the outlandish tale of how the passing of a family dog sets off a series of events with a major impact on a father-daughter relationship. Touted as an academy award winner for best foreign film in 2017, this is a must see, by all accounts.

Festival Director Katarina Hedrén who returns as the curator for the second time is delighted with the pickings: "With this year's selection which includes films of different genres, textures and moods, the aim is to entertain, amuse and offer opportunities for reflection, new discoveries and recognition," she says. "The theme binding the films together is cinematic excellence through acclaimed and award-winning films from 12 European countries."

The European Film Festival is coordinated by the Goethe-Institut South Africa, hosted by Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau, and organised in partnership with the Delegation of the European Union to South Africa and 12 other European cultural agencies or embassies in South Africa.

ABOUT THE MET: LIVE IN HD

Metropolitan Opera Live in HD (also known as The Met: Live in HD) is a series of live opera performances transmitted in high-definition video via satellite from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City to select venues, primarily movie theatres, in the United States and other parts of the world. The program was developed as a way to reach existing audiences and to introduce new audiences to opera through new technology.
